Frequently Asked Questions

Question Answer
What is ELD? Electronic Logging Device. A federal mandate for drivers to log their hours with a compliant device.
What is HOS? Hours of Service. ELD tracks HOS for compliance.
What is DVIR? Driver Vehicle Inspection Report. The driver is required to check the vehicle for defects. This can be required by the fleet even if federally exempt.
What are the main differences between ELD Mobile and ELD Connect? ELD Connect is a hardwired, connected solution where you would purchase your own ELD-related hardware directly from us.

ELD Mobile is a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) solution where you would bring your own hardware for viewing/managing Hours-of Service (HOS).
What hardware supports the ELD Connect solution? The GPSI-5000 and the ELD-2000D are devices that currently support ELD Connect, connecting and communicating with the tablet via a tethered cable.
What hardware supports the ELD Mobile solution? Currently the GPSI-5000 is the only device that supports ELD Mobile.
How does ELD Mobile work if I am using my own hardware? The GPSI-5000 is configured to sync with any phone/tablet working with Bluetooth (BLE), and is able to communicate via BLE to support whatever data is needed between the telematics device and your phone/tablet.
Should I be concerned about Bluetooth functionality? The telematics hardware we provide today has proven to be quite reliable in terms of supporting Bluetooth connectivity. That said, generally any non-physical connection is less reliable than hardwired. If you are concerned then ELD Connect would be the best solution for you.
